DMA IMPACT TEAM – now taking applications for 2019 !
We inspire our students to lead, learn, and grow. And we do it by igniting a fire in our students, driving each of them to become their fullest self.
Every student is overflowing with potential, if you know how to help them reach it.

Our curriculum has been perfected over our 4-decade history. We teach 4 core concepts of marching music leadership.
Every student receives personalized instruction & feedback, and practices teaching & commanding their peers—a key component of a successful Drum Major.
We’ve assembled a team of world class music educators over our 40-year history. Our workshops are taught by university professors and high school band directors.
Our staff bring their years and decades of experience to every one of our workshops. Our students get 1-on-1, hands-on training with music educators at the top of their field.
No good educator ever wastes a chance to teach. Our staff has a wealth of knowledge, and we share it with the world in our blog.
We write articles and posts about how to be a better Drum Major. We dare you to learn something.
